Robert Littal Presents BlackSportsOnline The Best in Sports & Sports Entertainment Tue, 16 Sep 2014 23:21:18 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Mother of Child Abused by Peterson Upset Photos Leaked Tue, 16 Sep 2014 23:21:18 +0000 blg 31 vikings giants

The mother of Adrian Peterson’s four-year old son whom he whooped with a stick is speaking out and she’s not happy.

According to a statement released by her attorney, the woman (whose name isn’t being given) is upset that photos of her son’s injuries, along with details of an ongoing investigation, were leaked to the public:

“My client, on behalf of herself and their son, wishes to express her extreme outrage at the invasion of their privacy that has occurred through the publication of highly confidential and private data obtained regarding them by the press without their permission or consent. My client is hurt and outraged that the press would publish throughout the world pictures of their minor son and publish statements allegedly made as part of the private and confidential criminal investigative file,” the statement said.

The fact that the photos were made public may be a criminal matter in itself, according to texas law.

“It is a violation of the law regarding the confidentiality of child abuse investigations,” said Phil Grant, the first assistant district attorney in Montgomery County.

Whoever leaked the photos and information regarding the child’s injuries could be subject to charges. It looks like the Adrian Peterson case will end up affecting more people than just Adrian Peterson.

Jesse Jackson Rips NFL For Lack Of Diversity In DV Advisers Tue, 16 Sep 2014 22:42:07 +0000 jesse-jackson-picture-1

Jesse Jackson has been quiet of late but has jumped into the fray to criticize the he NFL for not including any African-American women when it brought on three domestic violence experts as consultants according to the Associated Press.

Jackson said Tuesday: “Where is the jury of your peers?” The civil rights leader calls the lack of diversity among the senior advisers a “shameful insensitivity” that “compounds the credibility crisis.”

The league said Monday that Lisa Friel, Jane Randel and Rita Smith would serve as “senior advisers” to the NFL on domestic violence issues.

Giants Steve Weatherford Tweets “Giants Stink,” Claims Twitter Hacked (Photo) Tue, 16 Sep 2014 22:39:39 +0000 I’ve never understood how people’s social media accounts gets hacked, but here is another case of an allegedly hacker out for blood. Giants punter Steve Weatherford made an interesting post today on his twitter account claiming that his team wasn’t any good and he was right up there with them.

Steve Weatherford Twitter Hacked

It didn’t take long for Weatherford to fix the mistake. He quickly deleted the tweet and made a Twitter apology to Giants fans.

I sometimes wonder if people tweet stuff they always want to say and then chalk it up to being hacked just for the fun of it.

Arian Foster Thinks Domestic Violence & Alcohol Are The Same Thing Tue, 16 Sep 2014 22:03:48 +0000 Arian Foster, Luck

Arian Foster knows what he wanted to say, and made great points, he just said it wrong.

The Texans star running back wanted to point out the hypocrisy in Anheuser-Busch’s statement ridiculing the NFL for their handling of the leagues-domestic violence issue.

While explaining his point, Foster said that “domestic violence and alcohol are damn near synonymous.”

I understand what Foster was trying to say, but thats not the case at all.  Alcohol is likely to cause an act of domestic violence, but the two are not the same.

They can go hand-in-hand, but they are not synonymous with one another.   Assault, battery, or gender violence is synonymous with domestic violence, but not alcohol.

Liquor, strong drinks or spirits are synonymous with alcohol.   Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.

Adrian Peterson’s Foundation Goes on Hiatus Tue, 16 Sep 2014 21:45:06 +0000 Adrian Peterson Mugshot-1

No one really knows just where this Adrian Peterson situation will wind up when all is said and done. He’s already on the hook for allegations of child abuse for one child and with the discovery of new potentially damaging text messages between Peterson and another one of his children’s mothers about injuries, the heat is starting to turn up on the Minnesota Vikings star.

That heat appears to include his ‘All Day’ foundation being put on an abrupt hiatus according to it’s official website. The message on the homepage is as follows:

Adrian Peterson’s All Day Foundation is on a hiatus as of September 16, 2014.
The Foundation will reengage after Adrian, his family, and staff have reflected on how the current situation impacts the direction for Adrian’s philanthropy.

This could just be a part of the legal proceedings Peterson is currently involved in or it could mean something more. There’s no doubt this story won’t be going away anytime soon so I’m sure we will know for certain in due time.

Jameis Winston Allegedly Screaming “F*ck Her Right In Her P*ssy” Tue, 16 Sep 2014 21:17:05 +0000 jameis-winston-heisman-640x360

We have to throw the word allegedly around a lot these days because it can be hard to confirm a story, but if Jameis Winston did in fact pull of these shenanigans, then FSU truly has more than an immature Heisman winner on their hands.

According to Deadspin via several Florida State students who allegedly saw him, Winston stood on a table and yelled “f*ck her right in the p*ssy” on campus today.  

For those unaware, like myself, “F*ck her right in the p*ssy” was a fake video that turned into a meme.  

Either all of these people are telling the same lie, or the reigning Heisman winner really is socially unaware and simply has no clue or filter.

John Starks Admits Biggie’s ‘Story to Tell’ is a True Story (Video) Tue, 16 Sep 2014 21:12:53 +0000 Capture

Today on ESPN’s Highly Questionable, the panel hosted former Knicks guard John Starks. Bomani Jones cleverly posed the question to Starks that many Notorious B.I.G. fans have always wanted to know: Just what New York Knicks player was the butt of the legendary “Story to Tell” track, one of the best lyrical displays hip-hop has ever seen.

Incredibly, Starks admitted the story of B.I.G. laying up with a lady who was with one of the Knicks players was true, although he denied it happened to him. Check out the video below, the discussion begins at the 2:00 mark:

Personally, I always thought the song could’ve been about Allan Houston but that’s just in my imagination. Any guesses?

Senator Al Franken To Vikings: Suspend Adrian Peterson Tue, 16 Sep 2014 20:30:16 +0000 Adrian Peterson Mugshot-1

Politicians are supposed to focus on helping this great country of ours run as smoothly as possible, but they too enjoy delving into the world of sports.

Following the Minnesota Governors lead, Senator Al Franken released a statement saying the Vikings should suspend Adrian Peterson as well. 

“It was absolutely heartbreaking to hear about what happened to this child,” Franken said in a statement. “I’m a diehard Vikings fan, and watching the games on Sundays has been one of my favorite things to do since I was a kid. But this is just wrong, and I think the Vikings made the wrong decision here. This is in the hands of law enforcement now, and it must go through the judicial process, but I don’t believe Adrian Peterson should be allowed to play until that happens. A lot of kids look up to these players, and it’s not OK for the Vikings to send the signal that what happened is acceptable. This is bigger than a football game.”

Vegas Insiders Say Bettors Are Tired of Mayweather Fights Tue, 16 Sep 2014 19:09:35 +0000 Floyd-Mayweather-Super-Bowl-Bet

Floyd Mayweather has said that he’ll retire after next year’s September fight and the numbers surrounding his most recent fight are signalling that it may be the prefect time to leave. interviewed Vegas insiders on the betting climate of Mayweather’s fights:

William Hill director of trading Nick Bogdanovich described the betting handle on Mayweather-Maidana II as “horrible.” The Wynn, Westgate SuperBook, CG Technology and South Point also said the action was light.

“No big bets; no accumulation of small bets on the underdog. No interest,” Bogdanovich said.

Mayweather has not only seen his betting numbers drop drastically over the past 3-4 fights but he’s also seen his PPV numbers plummet. It seems as though Mayweather’s opponents have the most effect on these recent numbers.

The amount wagered on Saturday’s fight was down significantly across town. Jay Rood, vice president of race and sports books for MGM, said the rematch attracted less than 50 percent of the betting action that Mayweather’s fight with Canelo Alvarez drew in September 2013. – via

“We took a couple big bets on Floyd, but not as many as in the past,” said John Avello, executive director of the Wynn Race and Sports Book. Rood said the MGM took a couple of six-figure bets on Mayweather, but not nearly as many as in previous fights.

“He’s a draw, but it’s not translating to the betting window,” Rood said of Mayweather.

In hindsight, Canelo Alvarez has been Mayweather’s best opponent and only true threat in recent years. Mayweather was smart enough to catch Canelo at 23 years old and relatively green. Canelo will only add to his resume in the coming years and Mayweather’s win will look much more impressive in retrospect.

Mayweather will need to chose another strong/young contender for these next two fights if he hopes to changes these numbers and maximise his earning potential. Keith Thurman should be a top Mayweather’s wish list for the “May Day” fight.

Darren Sharper Suing The Saints For $95k Tue, 16 Sep 2014 19:01:55 +0000 Darren Sharper Mugshot

Accused serial rapist and ex-NFL star Darren Sharper is going to need all the cash flow he can get.

The former pro bowl safety is suing his former employer, the New Orleans Saints for an unpaid workers comp claim according to Nola.

Darren Sharper is taking legal aim at the New Orleans Saints from his California jail cell, pressing on with a previously denied workers compensation claim that his former employer owes him more than $95,000 because of a November 2009 knee injury he says shortened his career.

Sharper will try this week to overturn a judge’s ruling that found he waited too long to file his injury claim and failed to prove subsequent injuries the former safety says brought a premature end to his playing days. Sharper retired as an NFL player in November 2011, about two years before he was charged with drugging and raping women in California and Arizona, and being accused of similar crimes still under investigation in New Orleans and Las Vegas.

A three-judge panel of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeal is scheduled to hear oral arguments regarding the case. Sharper is scheduled to have hearings in his L.A. rape case start on Wednesday.

Lebron James Reconstructs 6th Grader Home In Akron (Video) Tue, 16 Sep 2014 18:34:46 +0000 lebron, luck

Ever since Lebron has returned home he has put forth a huge effort in not only turning around the economy of Akron, OH, but also the families.

According to the Akron Beacon Journal, Lebron and his foundation teamed up HGTV’s “Rehab Addict” to renovate a family home in Akron, Ohio. Mariah Riley is a 6th grader who won the contest after a random drawing. She’s apart of James’ Wheels for Education program which provides mentoring and support.

The LeBron James Family Foundation invited “Rehab Addict” to take on the project after considering several HGTV shows, says Michele Campbell, executive director of the foundation. She says one of the determining factors was the love Curtis has for her hometown of Detroit. Campbell likens it to James’ affection for Akron. “It seemed like her values and LeBron’s values … matched,” Campbell says.

The renovation was the centerpiece of the Promise Project, which also provided yard makeovers for nine other families of eligible sixth-graders in the Wheels for Education program. Local contractors and organizations donated materials and labor to the project, which also included volunteers associated with the foundation — many of them members of James’ family.

In a little more than a week, the workers rescued the house from a forlorn state. Besides making cosmetic improvements, the problems they remedied included a wet basement, inadequate electrical service, mildew, broken light fixtures, sagging porches and a leaking water heater.

Despite whatever team Lebron plays for, you can’t deny his community involvement.
